Razorlight - Fairytale Of Newyork tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This was a great song i heard on radio 1 live lounge, by Jonny Borrell (from razorlight)
accompanied by Lisa Moorish.  It is a great acoustic version of the Pogues original
and an absolute bugger to tab cos there is no logical repetition.  But finally got it 
thought i would post it, enjoy............

F#  G#  C#

                  C#
It was christmas eve babe
         F#
In the drunk tank
            C#                    G#
An old man said to me, wont see another one
              C#
And then he sang a song
              F#
The rare old mountain dew
              C#
I turned my face away
    F#      G#      C#      G#
And dreamed about you

           C#         G#
Theyve got cars big as bars
           A#m       F#
Theyve got rivers of gold
         C#
But the wind goes right through you
                      G#
Its no place for the old
         C#             A#m
When you first took my hand

On a cold christmas eve

Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome

                   G#
Queen of new york city

Sinatra was swinging,
                          G#
All the drunks they were singing
     C#          F#
We kissed on a corner

Then danced through the night


  F#                  G#
The boys of the nypd choir

For christmas day

       C#           F#        G#          C#
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
      C#
You scumbag, you maggot

I could have been someone
              F#

              C#
You took my dreams from me
              G#
When I first found you
